M3F, North America’s most renowned non-profit music festival, has announced the lineup for its highly-anticipated return to Margaret T. Hance Park in downtown Phoenix, Arizona, in 2022 and has released tickets. The festival, which will take place March 4-5, 2022, has donated $3.2 million to charity since its inception in 2004, with $1.1 million donated in the last two years alone. M3F donates 100 % of its proceeds to charity, which is the festival’s main focus.

In the national event landscape, M3F stands out as a one-of-a-kind, independent outlier. Originally spawned as a team-building exercise for its producers, WESPAC Construction, the festival acts as a philanthropic flagship for the City of Phoenix and a national invite for fans looking for a feel-good edition to their yearly music calendar. The non-profit has donated over $3.2 million to various causes since the event began, with over $1.1 million coming from the previous two years alone.

Festival’s lineup.

M3F’s 2022 lineup includes Grammy-nominated electronic producer and singer ZHU, American soul singer Leon Bridges, Haitian-Canadian record producer Kaytranada, British electronic music project Jungle, Australian electronic five-piece Parcels, multi-hyphenate American jam band Spafford, rock and electro-pop band A R I Z O N A, and rapper-singer Bryce Vine.

DJ / producer and Internet sensation Whethan, English songwriter and lyricist Elderbrook, live electronic act Two Feet, Brooklyn vocalist Cautious Clay, Seattle hitmaker Surf Mesa, alternative musician and conservationist Goth Babe, rising star Bea Miller, London duo Franc Moody, and many more incredible acts are among the highlights of the 2022 lineup.

Activities during the festival.

The festival reaches beyond the music into its focus on sustainability with over 80% of its waste being recycled, onwards to its amazing food and beverage curation, art installations, and much more. More information on immersive programming will be released soon.

M3F raised $600,000 for beneficiaries including the Music Therapy Program at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, the Northern Arizona Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Teach for America just before the world shut down in March 2020. M3F offered to return the funds raised to its donors after being forced to take a year off in 2021, but were honored to learn that these benefactors trusted the organization’s charitable vision in the face of national shutdowns. M3F has risen to its position as a high-impact non-profit organization that just happens to produce a burgeoning festival in its own backyard in the absence of the event, 18 years after it was founded.

The event has quietly and authentically stood as a guiding beacon for what can happen when the cultural influence of music, art, food, and immersive experiences is used for the betterment of society at large, thanks to its dedicated partners, sponsors, and charities.

Tickets for M3F are now on sale and can be purchased through their official website.
